Tonganoxie church collecting shoes
Sacred Heart Catholic Church is collecting shoes and boots for a local drive.
Residents are asked to gather any old, used and gently worn shoes from their closets and drop them off at the church, 1100 West St.
The shoe drive, which ends June 30, will help individuals in developing nations such as Ghana, Haiti and Bolivia. The church will accept any pair of shoes or boots as long as they are wearable. Bedroom slippers and flip flops also are being accepted.
Shoes can be left at any door at the church, which is at Washington and West (U.S. Highway 24-40) streets in Tonganoxie.
Organizers have set a goal of filling 300 bags with shoes.
Mailing information for the church is P.O. Box 539, Tonganoxie 66086.
